<p> These days, there's increasingly little reason to use a traditional locally installed office suite. <a href="http://reviews.zdnet.co.uk/software/productivity/0,1000001108,39284890,00.htm">Google Docs</a> and <a href="http://reviews.zdnet.co.uk/software/productivity/0,1000001108,39284434,00.htm">Zoho</a>, for example, are both free and well-featured web-based suites — and both can be used offline, thanks to <a href="http://gears.google.com/">Google Gears</a>.

If you live in one of the many (mainly rural) parts of the country marked ‘here be no terrestrial broadband’ on the map, and you’re frustrated by that, then you’re likely to be interested in SatDrive from Interactive Satellite Services. Launched in September this year, the £14.99 a month SatDrive is a one-way service that provides download speeds of up to 4Mbps via a satellite link, but relies on a conventional upload link, or ‘back channel’, using a dial-up modem or ISDN connection. This makes it much cheaper than two-way satellite services such as BTopenworld’s Business 500, although it does mean that your Internet connection is severely asymmetric, will generally require a dedicated phone line, and isn’t ‘always on’ in the conventional sense.
OmniSky International, a partnership between US-based OmniSky Corporation and News International, will shortly launch its integrated wireless email and Web browsing service across Europe.

We have been impressed with OmniSky's usability, range of optimised content and, to a lesser extent, speed (it currently runs on a 9.6Kbit/s GSM network). You can still sign up for the beta program, and OmniSky is running a special introductory offer comprising a Visor Platinum, VisorPhone and three months' free service for £199 (ex. VAT).
